The ancient fishing village of Cassis has seen its fair share of visitors over the millennia. The Phoenicians first arrived in the sixth century B.C., and with them came the timeless Ugni Blanc grape and viticultural savvy. The Romans later made their way here, as well as their Barbarian successors, followed by the medieval Counts of Les Baux. Cassis is not only an active port, but what Kermit calls “an earthly paradise.” The wine has aromas of Provencal herbs, anise, white peach and acacia. The palate is rounded but fresh with a peach like acidity, overall the wine is elegant, dry, and layered with notes of honeyed apricot and peach with saline, sea breeze accents.
